"She is alive, fit and fine. she wants to know why everybody is spreading false news," a family member told Press Trust of India.

Mumtaz, 71, lives in London with her family.

Last year in April, there were rumours about her demise which Mumtaz's younger daughter Tanya Madhvani had denied on social media. She even posted a response to the rumours on Instagram saying, "Hi, this is just a post to say that my mother is fine. She is in London. Komal Nahta has started some rumours and do not listen to them. She's sending her love and kiss to you all."

Director Milap Zaveri also confirmed the same on Twitter. He wrote that Mumtaz would like the rumours to stop.

Bollywood trade analyst Komal Nahta had first tweeted regarding Mumtaz's death on Twitter. However, he has now retracted the tweet and shared an apology.

One of the popular actresses in the 1970s, Mumtaz featured in films such as Mela, Apradh, Nagin, Bramachari, Ram Aur Shyam, Do Raste and Khilona.
